1939-10-30 [[Henry Armstrong]] w rsc 4 (15) [[Bobby Pacho]], Municipal Auditorium, Denver, Colorado, USA - WORLD. Referee: Jack Bloom. Six nights after beating [[Jimmy Garrison]], the champion was back in the ring once more defending his title, this time against the battle-scarred Pacho (146), who didn’t look to be in the greatest of shape at the weigh-in. The first three rounds saw Armstrong (140) all over Pacho, who to his credit was still looking to make a fight of it, and although the latter tried to get to close quarters in the fourth he was quickly sent spinning into the ropes from a fusillade of punches. With Armstrong pounding away to head and body until Pacho’s arms were dangling by his body and he was unable to defend himself the referee called it off after a minute and a half of the session had elapsed. This was Armstrong’s fifth title defence in just 22 days.
